Our people

Approachable, supportive, inclusive.

Our team consists of more than 20 lawyers, some of whom have practised in Vietnam since 1994.

No other law firm has enjoyed continuity at such a senior level in both cities. It makes us a strong team and sets us apart from the competition.

At Freshfields, we value difference and it’s our diversity that powers us. We want everyone to feel they can belong, engage and excel. We still have more to do, and we work closely with external partners to support our goals. We’ve a wide range of initiatives and objectives across disability, gender, LGBTQ+, mental health and wellbeing, race and ethnicity, and social mobility. We’re proud of our extensive pro bono work too, because we believe everyone deserves justice and opportunity. Wherever you work, you’ll have the chance to get involved.

Our people


We recruit top-class talent into our three main practice areas: corporate, investment and finance.

We want Vietnamese lawyers with excellent academic results and a strong command of written and spoken English.

Foreign lawyers should be at least two-years qualified and have experience in a reputable international law firm. They should have English as their mother tongue, or be fluent in English and one other European language.

Whatever your background, you must have an appetite for challenging work, a flair for creative thinking, and the organisation and discipline to manage complex deals.

We want people who fit in well with colleagues and clients and who thrive under pressure.

Business services

The challenging work our people do goes beyond the law. Our business services team is highly valued. We want only the best people to take on the roles so vital to our success.

No two days are the same for the people who keep our offices running smoothly and provide our lawyers with exceptional support, be that IT, accountancy or secretarial.

The dedicated and talented team includes secretaries and office assistants, office managers, accountants and business development professionals.


We ask a lot of our people but we give a lot in return. We offer outstanding career development throughout your time with Freshfields.

In Vietnam, much of your career development comes as you work on cutting-edge deals for large financial institutions and international businesses. You'll get daily opportunities to sharpen your analytical skills and develop creative thinking.

Our technical and cross-practice training programmes also help our associates to develop technical and professional skills.
